Mokoena nearing Wits deal
Johannesburg - Aaron Mokoena's proposed move to Bidvest Wits could be nearing its
conclusion after the former Bafana Bafana defender was absent from
Portsmouth's pre-season training on Monday.
Mokoena has been looking to secure a move to the PSL with the
Students, although he and his current employers have been unable to
agree a settlement dispute as the 31-year-old still has 12 months to run
on his deal.
However, the two parties may be close to reaching an agreement as
Mokoena, along with fellow African Kanu, were nowhere to be seen as the
League One outfit returned from holiday on Monday.
Former Arsenal striker Kanu is also set to leave Pompey, although
the Nigerian is also locked in a dispute with the team as he too has 12
months to run on his deal in England.
Mokoena would become Wits' fifth signing of the off-season, with
Tlou Molekwane, Matthew Pattison, Ayo Oluwafemi and Thokozani Mshengu
all having arrived at the club since the end of last season.
